Acres bed bids: Bids high for sale of Acres bed rights

June 26, 2012

Bids for the sale of beds from Auglaize Acres could bring in $720,000, if approved by the state.

“We were pleasantly surprised that they came in that high,” Auglaize Acres Administrator Connie Pierce said.

She noted county officials were surprised by the interest shown with bids from four different companies. She expected half that number.

But before the Acres can count on the sale of rights to the beds, the state must certify the high bidder’s certificate of need and go through an appeals process, which could take nearly two years.

Field fires forecasted

June 26, 2012

Hot, dry weather with little rain is forcing officials with area fire departments to be on the lookout for field fires.

Members of the St. Johns Fire Department responded along with the Botkins Fire Department to a field fire that burned approximately 15 acres of wheat stubble Saturday afternoon on Hardin Pike. The fire started when the wind blew flames and caused the dry wheat stubble to catch fire.

However, St. Johns Fire Chief Rodney Campbell said the area has otherwise been fortunate so far.

Auglaize Street in Wapakoneta has taken on more red, white and blue — to celebrate summer holidays and add a special “welcoming” theme to downtown.

Fern Hill Farmhouse shop owner Jodie Goodwin brought the idea up to the Wapakoneta Antique and Specialty Shops group (WASS) of adding some hand crafted decorations to display downtown to make the downtown shop area look more “cutesy.”
